Personal Thought for the Day #14

As much an annoyance that thief of peaceful sleep termed restless leg syndrome must be for those afflicted by the constant urge to move ones feet and legs during the night, I'm convinced that the runner up position of angst related to this unfortunate malady falls to the witness. The irregularly irregular limb movements, the sound as legs move across sheets or upholstery, again and again and again, render the observer unable to do much of anything else but listen for the next salvo.


  1. Well, I'm trying to figure out if you are the witness or the afflictee. Me thinks the former? This is one of those things that I am not sure we have never suffered from before, or if it's always been there and it just didn't have a name...

  2. I suffered from something like this when I was pregnant. I'd wake up in the middle of the night with leg cramps, and the only thing that helped was to jump out of bed and put weight on the offending leg. Massage therapy helps all my aches and pains now. Is it possible for the person to get a leg massage?
